This place is a hidden gem. Eddie the owner was very helpful. The log burner and hot tub were ready when we arrived which was lovely. The cottage has everything you need and the bed was super comfortable. We wanted a relaxing break and that is what we got. All in all we would highly recommend Crofters cottage and we will definitley be booking again soon. Simply Amazing :-):-):-)
Oasis of calm and serenity...

A quirky, unique and romantic cottage in an idyllic location with excellent facilities. This is the perfect place to come to get away from it all with only the sheep for company, Eddie and Louise the hosts were most helpful and made our stay even more comfortable. Not many places would you find your own exclusive use hot tub. An amazing location, excellent accomodation, facilities and professional service from the hosts. Lots to do and explore in the local area. Recommend to all, we will be back.
